The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991) is probably the best 911 ever built by the German sports car maker. When the new GT3 RS was showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show everybody knew what to expect as over the years Stuttgart has given us some fantastic machines to play with. Built in limited numbers, the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a street-legal race car that somewhat retains the old school handling and response that car enthusiasts love.
